Project Deity [B&M Hyper Coaster RLRides]

After Infinity I wanted to go delve back into a B&M. The recent announcement of Orion and my little obsession with Fury's layout has drawn me towards a Giga. It's been a tough one to get right, trying to balance a good variety of elements and that intense speed, while making it have a beautiful skyline and a track length that isn't unrealistically long. It's made me understand better just what B&M have had to do with their Giga designs, it's very much a delicate balance.

All the while trying to make it feel graceful and powerful with smooth transitions and that modern B&M shaping. After a good few months of tweaking and testing I have a layout I like! The project name Diety is to reflect the intimidating, powerful yet graceful and beautiful nature of the ride. I would like to think IRL this coaster would sit next to the existing 3 B&M gigas.

I love the track color! Layout seems to flow quite well also. I'm sure it's on your to-do list, but the lift supports look a tad undersized though. Can't wait to see more progression!

Some more supports on the ampersand. REALLY happy with this element, aesthetic and pacing wise.

Yeah I agree, the supports are just placeholders now, I'm going to go back to them to get them more realistic, same with the lift spine. It's still early stages at the moment.

Has a great vibe of a 'modern' Apollo's Chariot turnaround. I bet it kicks butt at Giga scale. :)

Supporting almost completed, got a few ideas I need to flesh out now the actual ride hardware is getting close to completion.

Seems to be very much what Orion could've been...This will surely be better though! :p

I think this is the best helix I've done so far. It was deceptively difficult to tweak in FVD and it rides better in the actual sim.

Supports pretty much done, just need help from a model builder next.

I'm excited for this one. That does look 'very B&M'.
